Squareback Anthias or Purple Blotch Basslet
Due to its unique color variation, the Squareback Anthias is also known as the Squarespot Anthia, Purple Blotch Basslet, Squareblock Anthia, or Mirror Anthia fish. The body of the female is predominantly yellow with a lavender belly, and often a thin blue line extending from nose to pectoral fin. Males are predominantly pink with a lavender belly and have a lighter rectangular shape on the side.
The Squareback Anthias or Purple Blotch Basslet does best in an aquarium with low, indirect lighting or its brilliant colors will fade. Although preferring to remain at the mid-tank level, they have been found at depths up to 600 feet in the wild. A 100 gallon tank will suffice for one fish.
